About This Plant
Sun/part sun; soft, silvery foliage, densely covered with silky fuzz. Purple flower spikes appear in summer. Lambs ear is a low-growing, fast-spreading perennial, often planted among herbs or around the bases of bigger plants; as the name suggests, its texture makes it a good addition to a sensory garden.
The leaves tend to retain moisture, so overhead watering and high humidity can cause lambs ear to rot. Well-drained soil is key.
